I signed up again for another 5% weight loss challenge starting April 8. The challenge runs for 8 weeks. I find this challenge helps me get back on track and keeps from gaining all my weight back. I have been a Spirited Underdog for most of the challenges.

I live in Washington State. I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?

My family includes my husband, 2 Moluccan cockatoos (more trouble than my children were) and a Pomchi .

I have 3 daughters, 2 live in the Seattle WA. area and Silverdale. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. and she gave birth 13 months ago to a beautiful baby girl 2/20/16. I babysit her a couple days a week and am thrilled to do so. I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 23, 18, 6 and 4. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing and keeping our weight off!!

    emoticon Happy St. Patrick's Day emoticon

    St. Patrick was a gentleman
    Who through strategy and stealth
    Drove all the snakes from Ireland.
    Here's toasting to his health.
    But not too many toasting so
    Lest you lose yourself and then
    Forget the good St. Patrick
    And see all those snakes again.

    Thank you very much! The big 3+ loss has more to do with last week then this week. My weight has been jumping up and down all Challenge. Last week it spiked up erasing everything I'd lost and then some. This week I lost about about a pound and a half. The rest is some sort of correction.

    It's 50 and raining out today today. What an improvement!

    Thanks for the fruit. Yes, I am looking forward to brighter colors. Will have the second surgery on the 15th. Will be able to attend Ash Wednesday mass and get ashes.. Of course I have to wash them off before surgery....Blessings on your Lenten journey.

    The different way I'm eating is to follow the requirements for the Nineveh 90 Challenge at No eating between meals, no alcohol, no desserts or sweets, no soda or sweetened drinks, 2 days of fasting per week.

    Add to that the required 7 hours of sleep and regular intense exercise.

    And all the prayers and daily mass and holy hours are helping me stay focused on God and not on eating.
